Subject: Great fun and impressive, "...but what's next--?"
... the ending cuts off before wink can answer.
wonder what the rest of the script says? bummer.

Love the velour Jetsons-wear on the guys, and the hooded muumuus too. I'm ordering an outfit like that on Amazon right now.....one click buy, place order...oh, I hear the drone already! Excuse me.

Subject: Right and wrong
This is interesting, not just for what they got wrong, but because they got some things partially right. They predicted online shopping, email, watching videos, looking up the weather, and taking tests on computers. Their main issue was thinking it would be through a central house computer rather than personal computers.
Of course, they also make it so styles haven't changed since the 60s!

This film made a fuss last year and for good reason, for entertainingly predicting the future, mostly with computer technology. See Wink Martindale send email, do online banking, and his wife shops online! Funky! Interesting to compare the technology then with the actual technology of today. Anyone know who the singer is in the end?

Six months later on jan 1 2000. The computers become our overlords. But nice to see a young wink martindale and gary collins. The mom played alex spallding on the guideing light can't remember her name.
